Great architecture

This mosque is located near to Jeddah International airport. It has wonderful architecture, and surrounded by red sea. Only looks floating if the tide is high.

A must see in Jeddah. It feels great while standing beside Masjid, look at the see and you feel like its really floating. Only drawback is need more attention by Authorities to maintain cleanliness inside and outside of the Masjid.

It's a mosque with good view facing to the Red Sea. Unfortunately, the toilet is not really clean and also the yard full of seller around. But overall it's a good place to visit (and taking photos) when in Jeddah.

This mosque is a great place for expats to take photos, just make sure to be discreet, wear your abaya and hijab, and don't point the camera at women.

Still have almost all of the old city vintage homes, schools, mosques, streets, and even City big Gates. Also, old markets that can be confusing and easy to get lost in, but it's safe and can be fun experience. Hotels, malls, transportation are all available and can be suitable for any type of visitors and tourists.

Asaalm alikum, dears, Masjeds ( Mosques ) are for praying, mentioning Allah, reading Quran and tranquility! It’s wrong to make a place of worship as a tourist attraction. I believe we have to respect Masjeds, Churches, temples and other places for worship and leave it as it is. They are the only places to feed your soul. They have to... More

Eventhough it's called floating mosque, it's not floating at all, I don't know where it came from, perhaps because it's like floating from far away. Long times ago, When people go to hajj with still a ship, they came through jeddah, and rest in here.
